More than a Cowork­ing Space

Silicon Luxembourg - - NEWS -

MAI­SON BREEDEWEE IS AN IN­NO­VA­TIVE NEW COWORK­ING SPACE IN LUX­EM­BOURG. THE REN­O­VATED HOUSE HAS BEEN TRANS­FORMED INTO A PLACE WHERE PRO­FES­SION­ALS AND EN­TREPRENEURS CAN MEET, AC­CESS AD­VI­SORY SER­VICES AND RE­CEIVE BUSI­NESS SUP­PORT IN AN EN­VI­RON­MENT THAT FOS­TERS THREE KEY VAL­UES: EX­CHANGE, AU­THEN­TIC­ITY AND CON­NEC­TION. COM­MU­NI­CA­TION MAN­AGER LAURA MONTEREAU IN­VITED SIL­I­CON IN­SIDE THE HOUSE AND GAVE US A GLIMPSE OF THE PROJECT.

WHAT IS THE CON­CEPT OF MAI­SON BREEDEWEE?

Mai­son Breedewee is founded on four cor­ner­stones: busi­ness club, events, club net­work­ing and star­tups. First and fore­most, it is a busi­ness club that brings to­gether pas­sion­ate, cu­ri­ous and open-minded pro­fes­sion­als look­ing to meet new peo­ple, launch new projects and cre­ate syn­er­gies. We or­ga­nize events geared to­ward the spe­cific needs and in­ter­ests of our mem­bers. Through these events, our aim is to de­velop new busi­ness projects with en­trepreneurs who wish to broaden their fields of ac­tiv­ity. On the startup side, thanks to part­ner­ships and col­lab­o­ra­tions, we can sup­port young star­tups who have cho­sen Lux­em­bourg as the hub to de­velop their busi­ness.

WHY DID YOU DE­CIDE TO CRE­ATE A COWORK­ING SPACE?

Workspaces have un­der­gone a great trans­for­ma­tion and the ap­proach to col­lab­o­ra­tion has also evolved. In a place like Mai­son Breedewee, where you meet and ex­change ideas, it seemed log­i­cal to cre­ate an open space where var­i­ous com­ple­men­tary skills and di­verse pro­files could come to­gether.

Our role is not as a clas­sic cowork­ing space: we only have 10 open-space sta­tions, re­served for com­pa­nies with a spe­cific back­ground. These spots are ideal for new Lux­em­bour­gish en­ti­ties, for ex­am­ple, that can ben­e­fit from the fidu­ciary ser­vices avail­able on our premises.

Fur­ther­more, our lease con­tracts have a max­i­mum du­ra­tion of one year. In this way, we are al­ways meet­ing new pro­fes­sion­als and sup­port­ing a va­ri­ety of com­pa­nies in their de­vel­op­ment.

HOW ARE YOU GET­TING IN­VOLVED IN LUX­EM­BOURG'S STARTUP ECOSYS­TEM?

We are not a startup in­cu­ba­tor or ac­cel­er­a­tor as we do not have the full spec­trum of re­sources. How­ever, we have a strong net­work that we lever­age and can sup­port star­tups es­tab­lished abroad but look­ing to ex­pand their ac­tiv­i­ties in Europe.

Lux­em­bourg is a great place for star­tups due to its in­fra­struc­ture and cen­tral po­si­tion in Europe. We can pro­vide star­tups with a list of key con­tacts, take care of all the ad­min­is­tra­tive and ac­count­ing tasks, and find in­vestors and ex­ter­nal premises.
